Default Highlander First Flight

I've just finished building and balancing my first glider--a MAD Highlander. I'm a newbie, so here are some beginner questions.

Assuming that I will launch this glider without an expert present, is it a good idea to hand launch this glider a few times to check it out, or would it be best to hi-start it the first time.

I'm thinking that hand launching doesn't give me any reaction time to adjust elevator or rudder if it flys erratically.

Should the first flight be on a level elevator, or should I raise it a little?
